Types of Skin - How to Find the skin type?

Normal Skin Type

If the skin smooth, supple and elastic, it is normal. A healthy, normal skin is unblemished, velvety, smooth and supple, with no enlarged pores or flaky dead cells.

Dry Skin Type

A flaky and dull skin is generally dry with a tendency towards broken veins, flakiness and dry patches and it needs lot of care. If neglected, it turns into wrinkles and lines.
